Junior High School

Junior High School

Junior High Overview

Junior High curriculum helps bridge between primary and senior high. The focus will be on age-appropriate education, and support for students’ wellbeing and transitions. Under five guiding principles, the Junior High will provide challenging educational offerings that engage young adolescents, while giving them a sense of belonging and support through the changes they face.


1. Distinct identity
Junior High students will be encouraged and supported to develop their own group identity within the wider high school. This can involve dedicated school areas and events.



2. Quality teaching
Teachers working with students in the Junior High years will support young teens through these crucial early high school years. They will use the best practices, technology, and purposeful collaboration to positively impact students.





3. Student wellbeing
We will meet the social and emotional needs of Junior High students with a strong focus on pastoral care and support students as they adjust to new routines and greater academic demands.





4. Parent involvement
We want parents to stay connected with their students’ learning when they enter Junior High. Parent involvement in assemblies, special events, award ceremonies and leadership presentations will be welcomed.





5. Leadership
We will encourage students to create leadership roles. Dedicated teachers experienced with teaching young adolescents will lead Junior High supported by the principal and the administration team.



 

Intergrated Curriculum

Across the curriculum, our faculty and staff have committed themselves to a school-wide goal of seeking ways to create rigorous, relevant, and engaging curriculum. In this multidisciplinary approach, teachers fuse skills, knowledge, or even attitudes into the regular school curriculum. Cambridge Secondary 1 curriculum frameworks are used to teach English, mathematics and science. 


Medium of instruction
English is the dominant business language and it has become almost a necessity for people to speak English if they are to enter a global workforce of interconnected and interdependent.


Assessments

USBN and UNBK are applied
  • Cambridge Secondary 1 Checkpoint test
  • Used as an external international benchmark for student performance at the beginning of the Grade 9. Each student receives a statement of achievement and a diagnostic feedback report.
